Social Networking Social Networking Presentation Transcript

  • Social Networking/ Media for small businesses Chris Rauchle @ The Boardroom Thursday, 17 December 2009
  • Social Networking • Personal use - connecting one to one • Personal brand - name of business also a person • Broadcast to a group of interested parties • Able to do direct metrics on conversions • People trust associates more than strangers • Halo effect but also guilt by association 2
  • Social Media • Podcasts - a news feed that links to audio • Vodcasts - same but for video • Blogs - Web log • Microblogging features very short posts and is now most popular as Twitter • Emailed newsletters • All linked through social networking to your community of interest or practice 3
  • Lots of people tweet/blog/ vlog/facebook their brand 4
  • Amazing variety Far too many options - need to simplify/ choose 5
  • The Present
  • Podcasts • Upload for free to iTunes for free download • Make the item available on your website as a feed that iTunes users subscribe to • Just put up a compatible file (mp3) and they can download and import it to their device • Vodcasts are the same, just with quicktime movies • Most website hosting provides tools to manage Vodcasts and Podcasts 7
  • Blogs • Blogger, Typepad and Wordpress all host blogs on their sites for you • Most web hosting will host and provide tools for your blogs • You can blog on the run from your phone or send an email to your blog that will automatically be published • On the Mac, iWeb is free and you can upload iWebs to your Bigpond/Webcentral/MobileMe 8

  • Twitter • SMS for the web, • Nothing new - 140characters limit, direct messages or broadcast to Buchannan and ‘followers’ or available to Victoria tweeted in anyone searching the 1858 ‘twitterverse’ • Follow or be followed • Special Characters: @ # #ln = linkedin #fb=facebook Nothing new - Buchannan and Victoria tweeted in 1858 10
  • Ashton Kutcher and Ellen? 11
  • Facebook 12
  • Why do it • Authority comes from being referred to (this is how Google assesses relevance) • Limited customer time means more interactions facilitated by IT so social interactions will be the same • Devoting our limited time to social media magnifies our influence but preserves customer care 13
  • What’s the takeaway? • Sites with low utility will have low use like a poorly designed shop (Nokia example) • Free sample: recipe, stationary, cartoon, image that prompts recall and volunteering of your details to others • Is a little slice of ‘the truth’ about you - helps you remain top of mind with customers and potential customers and is more credible and immediate than a blog or newsletter 14
  • Uncomfortable with trivia? • Facebook used to be a ‘work’ site and was distinguished from myspace.com which was primarily for high school children - it now has more than 200M members • Twitter has more than 12M users • Linkedin has been around for over 8 years and has over 50M members 15
  • Linkedin 16
  • Yammer • A sort of business facebook/twitter • Shows org charts and internal connections • For sharing info ideas and thoughts within an organisation 17
  • iPhone Apps • All these are available to use on the go 18
  • Social Media • Public brands for small and large business people: • marthastewart, timferris, davidpogue, oprah • A lot of work: Our Marketing Plan • Lots of distraction from looking for work and building your business...try to segment your time on these services to prevent calling interesting and unimportant tasks ‘work’ 19
  • What’ll you do/not do Small businesses have to do at least some of these activities to grow. This is the essence of social network/ media marketing 20
  • Google Favourite Places • State of the art in Japan ten years ago • Telstra tried and failed to implement working model • QR (Quick Response) codes require a camera phone and links to rich content...in this case Google is using its Favourite Places and has paid reviewers for the obvious links but you can add your own 21
  • Favourite Places 22
  • Google Latitude • Where are my friends? • How do I navigate to them? • Is there a coffee shop nearby where we can meet? 23
  • or a local business you have an affinity with 24
  • Location Based - Google Goggles 25
  • Loopt 26
  • Even find new friends Grindr is an iphone app that shows other users around you based on proximity - the really scary thing is when you find someone who is 0 miles away (ie they were standing where you were standing or are on the floor above/below you 27
  • The Future
  • Augmented reality - Avatars • Useful for low bandwidth, time delayed or location challenged conferences • Live online gaming, second life (Telstra, ACPA) • Business cards that animate on a webcam 29
  • AR business cards 30
  • Augmented reality social media 31
  • Realtime translation • Realtime simultaneous translation gives access to speakers in other markets and extends social media outside your own language population • Translation software can work on media captions and caption foreign speakers in over 50 languages for YouTube clips • Expect to have interactive email and chat clients where participants use different languages (demoed with Google Wave) 32
  • Google auto translate 33
  • Slideshare • Upload your presentations and documents to get noticed • Link to your linkedin/other networks • Present once use many times 34
  • Thank you!
